Established in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley, at the north-eastern tip of New Zealand’s South Island and amongst some of the region’s toughest viticultural conditions, the story of Yealands Family Wines was always going to be one of thinking differently. On 08.08.08, having completed the enormous task of sculpting his vast rolling terroir from behind the wheel of his digger, Peter Yealands opened the landmark Yealands Estate Winery. With designed-in sustainability features and cutting-edge SMART green technology, it was the first in the world to be carboNZeroCertTM from inception. Yealands Family Wines quickly became synonymous with bespoke premium quality wine. Within eight vintages, the talented team has won 25 trophies and more than 1,300 awards. Thinking differently is what we do at Yealands. Crafting award-winning wines in harmony with nature has seen us lead the world in sustainable winegrowing. But most importantly, it means great tasting wines which don’t cost the earth.
